got laptop. Its a dell Vostro 1400. It had options of Dell 1390 wifi
card or Intel 3945. I took Intel card as I had heard about problems
with dell wifi card . Also it has Nvidia 8400 graphics card. I installed
fedora 7 on it. The graphical install did not work, nor did the installer
recognise my dvd drive. So I performed a text based install from USB HDD
which had images for Fedora 7 DVD. After installing , it booted to
runlevel 3 . where I set xorg driver to vesa and got GUI. Then I installed
nvidia drivers from livna.org . All worked fine except the dvd drive and
intel wifi card. So I upgraded the kernel to 2.6.22_41 and dvd drive is now
working. I have also got wireless working with dkms-ipw3945 drivers from
Freshrpms. So I have pretty much all setup on this lappy including the sound
and integrated webcam, if anyone wants any more notes , or if anyone's
planning to buy these dell laptops I would say its really safe to get these
coz pretty much everything works.

Today at a client's place I had set up a wireless
router and tried Ubuntu 7.04 live CD on his Dell XPS
M1210 lappy. It not only gave the usual laptop grade
Desktop with sound but I clicked on a network icon
with a cross on the task bar and it showed the
surrounding wireless network. On clicking it I got the
interface to enter the 128 bit key and my net was up
and running. Bang out of the box. Thanks to the
preloaded Vista, the customer will himself download
the CD iso from Ubuntu. The wireless network card in
the lappy is some Intel one.

I'm using Kubuntu feisty. For some reason, I cannot login to the gui
because, /dev/null is created w/ 600 perms. And yes the relevant line in
/etc/udev.d/rules does mention /dev/null having 666 perms. Supposedly this
is a problem w/ udev.
My workaround at the moment is to hit ctrl-alt-f2, login, chmod /dev/null,
ctrl-alt-f7 and then I can login to the gui. This needs to be done at
every boot. I have 'cn' aliased to sudo chmod 666 /dev/null. Saves some
Now to come to my problem. I inadvertantly hit ctrl-n at the prompt and
now the login prompt at the cli is displayed in weird characters. It's
like when you type something in wordprocessor and then change to font to
wingdings or something.
How do I get my normal login prompt back ?

Sinners can repent, but stupid is forever.
I am finding the openofice web site very confusing.
can some one give me the exact url to download the latest stable
version of openoffice rpm binary?
I went to www.openoffice.org and clicked the download link but did not
find any thing except the snapshot builds. I want the stable version
which I am not finding some how.
if any one has already downloaded the rpm, please contact me off the list.
I have put in the /etc/sudoers file the following line:
sadhu ALL=(root) NOPASSWD:/usr/bin/yumex
I was expecting that when logged in as user "sadhu" I will be rum yumex
without authentication, but it still asks for root authentication when I
try to run yumex.
Can you please refer me to the correct sudoers syntax or to a how-to.
Thanks and regards.

Fixed. No issue with version 0.5.0-6, since Debian consider last -

Oh dear! Congrats!
Well, as a sidenote, please note that upstream always avoid '-'
(dash) in version scheme :)
This will make me difficult to create Debian/Ubuntu packages :(
